Basketball picks: Several huge region games on tap this weekend

By AccessWDUN Staff

The new year is bringing some excellent basketball matchups throughout Northeast Georgia. 

With that, the AccessWDUN sports staff put together another round of picks this week. We take an in-depth look at several huge region showdowns this week.

-- Can the Gainesville girls pull a massive upset against No. 10 North Forsyth in Coal Mountain?

-- Will the Gainesville boys continue their good start against a battle-tested and big North Forsyth team on the road?  

-- Can the Cherokee Bluff girls break the five-game skid against East Forsyth to remain near the top of the Region 8-4A subregion?

-- The Banks County girls look to take a hold on Region 8-2A against a hot Athens Academy team.

-- The Flowery Branch boys' loss to Winder-Barrow has them in fourth place, but a win on Friday against Heritage-Conyers in Flowery Branch will have them back near the top of the Region 8-5A standings.

To watch, press play above.
